Walker, Scott - Sings Jacques Brel
(Philips 6359.090 UK-81 EX 300:-)

Jacques Brel is to Scott Walker roughly as Woody Guthrie is to Bob Dylan. At a formative point in Walker's career, his sensibility was crucially informed by Brel. So much so that he recorded nine Brel compositions on his first three albums.

This collection shines a spotlight on that part of Walker's musical makeup by putting all of those tracks together in one place. Walker's deep, rich voice bears more than enough high-dramatic quality to pull of the extreme emotional range of Brel's songs.

Original UK pressing. Both Sleeve and Vinyl are graded EX.
Walker, Scott - Stretch
(Epic ECPM-40 Jap-73 EX 300:-)

Scott Walker's first album for CBS, purports to be a detour into country music, but it is a side road that Walker decided not to pursue thoroughly. Only a handful of songs, like Tom T Hall's "That's How I Got to Memphis" and Mike Newbury's "Sunshine," are genuine country songs, and the remainder of the album consists of mainstream pop and folk-rock songs that are quite similar to his latter-day Phillips albums. The difference is that Walker sounds more committed on this record, singing with a greater passion than on any record since Til the Band Comes In.

Scarce Japanese Epic label 11-track vinyl LP, housed in a pasted gatefold picture sleeve with integral Japanese/English lyric insert and obi-strip.
Velvet Underground - Everything You've ever Heard
(VU Records VU-333 UK-82 EX 400:-)

Few rock groups can claim to have broken so much new territory, and maintain such consistent brilliance on record, as the Velvet Underground during their brief lifespan. During their time, the group experienced little commercial success; though they were hugely appreciated by a cult audience and some critics, the larger public treated them with indifference or, occasionally, scorn. The Velvets' music was too important to languish in obscurity, though; their cult only grew larger and larger in the years following their demise, and continued to mushroom through the years.

30-track triple vinyl LP box set, housed in a textured picture box featuring a yellow banana image on the front plus tracklisting insert.
Velvet Underground - Live 1969
(Mercury SRM-2-7504 US-74 VG+ 300:-)

By 1969, the Velvet Underground had gone through myriad changes. Since the release of their groundbreaking debut album in late 1966, the band parted ways with both Nico and Andy Warhol, lost the services of the great John Cale, and tackled all sorts of sonic exploration. By this time, bassist Doug Yule had replaced Cale, and they were working in a far more traditional context, becoming a genuine, full-fledged rock and roll band.

They toured heavily during 1969, ultimately leading to them becoming the tight unit showcased on 1970's 'Loaded.' Those shows became legendary over the years, due in no small part to '1969: The Velvet Underground Live,' which was released in 1974. This was the first truly solid document of the band in a live setting. Not that '1969' is some sort of audiophile's dream, but it is a full-sounding recording and, more to the point, the band is on fire here. Some of the tracks were recorded in October of '69 at the End of Cole Ave. club in Dallas, while the bulk were from November shows at the Matrix in San Francisco. The set lists and overall energy shown on these nights was fairly typical of the band at this point in time.

Original US pressing; the sleeve shows normal wear and has the uncensored pictures of Moe and Sterling inside the gatefold. The vinyls are graded VG+.

Who - Live at Leeds
(Track 2406.001 UK-7? VG+ 400:-)

A landmark live set from The Who – a record that offers the group with a blistering intensity that blows away all their other studio albums of the time! Although offered during the Who's Tommy-era expansion into broader themes and more complicated instrumentation, the album's a real return to basics – and features a guitar-heavy version of the group performing a number of older rock n roll classics like "Summertime Blues", "Shakin All Over", and "Young Man Blues" – plus really extended jamming takes on their own "My Generation" and "Magic Bus", and a searing 2 minute take on "Substitute"!

1970s UK pressing, in gatefold card 'bootleg' style sleeve with BLUE text on the front, complete with all twelve inserts.
Who - Live in Hyde Park
(Eagle ERDVLP088 UK-15 EX 275:-)

The Who celebrated their fiftieth anniversary with this stunning show in London's famous Hyde Park. On a glorious summer evening the band delivered a brilliant performance of all their greatest hits in front of a 50,000 strong crowd. As Pete Townshend says at the start of the show; "You're a long way away...but we will reach you!" . He's absolutely true to his word.

3LP 180g Set with bonus DVD.
Villagers - Live at the Workman's Club, Dublin
(Domino WIGLP273 UK-11 EX 275:-)

Villagers are an Irish indie folk band from Dublin, formed in 2008, after singer Conor O'Brien's break-up of his previous band The Immediate.

Villagers’ night at the Workman’s Club was as much celebration as a gig. Throughout the hour long performance, Conor’s voice ranges from the intimate tones of a friend confiding in you on tracks like ‘27 Strangers’ and ‘The Pact’ to the soaring, almost rapture-like intensity on ‘Pieces’ and ‘Home’.

Exclusive Record Store Day 2011 release.
Vincent, Gene - I'm Back and I'm Proud
(Dandelion S-63754 UK-69 EX 400:-)

Gene Vincent was languishing on the oldies circuit in 1969, attracting slightly more interest in Europe than his US homeland, when he made this album for John Peel’s Dandelion label. Steppenwolf’s Mars Bonfire, The Byrds’ Skip Battin and The Lovin’s Spoonful’s John Sebastian feature in the band, as does a young Linda Ronstadt on backing vocals.

1969 UK 12-track LP, gatefold sleeve with internal pocket. The sleeve shows some very minor wear; the vinyl is in Excellent condition!
